This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic Compact ATX Mid Tower Case
Pros: Case is overall well designed. Cable routing is satisfactory. The case is wide enough to accommodate the 120mm tower style CPU cooler I selected (Xigmatek Gaia) with about 2 cm to spare. All of the tool-less features worked well, though some of the thumb screws needed a screwdriver to unstick on the first use. The case comes with ample hardware and extra rubber fan spacers.
The front USB ports are far enough apart to prevent most flash drives from blocking the other port. Front mounted USB 3.0 is a good feature to have for the future.
The appearance is a plus for me: it is sleek and simple. Others might want a case with windows, lighted fans, and more color.
Cons: It has a pretty bright white power LED. Something to keep in mind.
Other Thoughts: While it is definitely still a mid-tower, this is not an especially big case. It's about 3 inches shorter than my previous mid-tower. It has plenty of room for a full ATX build, but if you are putting a LOT of components in your case it might get crowded.
It is also a budget case so the designers did cut some corners. The cable routing cutaways don't have rubber flaps. There are only two dust filters. The case has some sound-reducing features but not all of them. It isn't built like a tank with heavy gauge steel. You get the idea. Look at the features closely before you buy.
Overall this was a perfect case for my budget build. Highly recommended.
This review is from: Wii Play with Wii Remote Wii Game
Pros: You're buying a remote, and a cheap game. If you want a remote, and an extra game to get started with the new system, it's solid. Wii Play, the game, is good for kids, casual types, non-gamers.
Cons: Wii Play is not for serious gamers. If you're part of the Madden/Halo set, or you just bought the Wii to play Zelda and Smash Bros., just buy a separate remote.
Other Thoughts: Bottom line, you're getting a remote, and you're buying an extra game. Don't buy the extra game if you don't want it. Nintendo has pretty cleverly bundled this as a way to get money from new Wii users, so be wary. If you want some cheap games, there's some really great stuff available for download forREAD FULL REVIEW
